Times Square, 42nd Street
Theater District

Getting Around in Manhattan: Times Square is one block west of Bryant Park. It's a block east of the Port Authority Bus Terminal and four blocks west of Grand Central Station. Fifth Avenue is the dividing point between "east" and "west" streets, so blocks to the east of Fifth Avenue are numbered E. 42nd, E. 43rd St., etc., while blocks to the west are numbered W. 42nd etc. Grand Central is east of Fifth Avenue, so Grand Central is on East 42nd, while Times Square is on West 42nd.

42nd Street

This block between 7th Ave. (Times Square) and 8th Avenue is the fabled 42nd street.


Broadway and 7th Avenue crisscross at 45th Street, creating triangle islands for several blocks when intersected by cross streets. This is north of Times Square. "The New York Times" once occupied the little triangle at Times Square, and still has its offices less than two blocks away.
